A Seaman's Book of Sea Stories(2013)
An anthology of stories edited by Desmonde Fforde
This work contains stories that range from the Napoleonic wars, via ships that traded under sail round Cape Horn, to what it was like to take charge of a ship in convoy, serve in the fore-ends of a submarine or fly a Corsair against the Japanese. If you have seen a WW1 picture of a ship in dazzle camouflage, there is a description of how it came about, and the Dunkirk evacuation is movingly depicted. Lastly there is Uffa Fox's airborne lifeboat: a real masterpiece of design, and what a man! All profits benefit the Prostate Cancer Charity.
